Foundational Courses of Study

The foundation courses at TROY are considered the "boot camp" of the program. The objective of these courses is to set the pace and provide the students with the basics of art and design while learning cutting-edge technology. Due to the unique nature of our approach to art and design instruction, transfer students should speak to a faculty advisor before applying to the program.

Foundation courses are:

  • Introductory Drawing • ART2201
  • eDrawing • ART2210
  • Digital Tools • ART2208
  • Foundations of Form & Space • ART1145
  • Foundations of Time & Space • ART1150
  • Color & Technology • ART3310
  • Survey of Art History 1 • ART2250
  • Survey of Art History 2 • ART2251

Upon successful completion of these foundational courses, students are prepped for entry into the mid-upper level coursework of the major field of their choice within art and design. Consultation with an academic advisor is strongly recommended when selecting an art/design program.
